All you need to do is let us know what you would like to do, book the tour and we organise the rest. Our tours include pick up and drop off from your accommodation, morning tea for our half day tours, a winery restaurant lunch for the full day tours, the benefit of the local knowledge of our guides and an Explore Marlborough drink bottle to take away with you as a momento of your day. Explore Marlborough is small enough and flexible enough that we can also organise a personalised tour to suit your itinerary.

Our wine tours by bike are suitable for anyone capable of riding a bicycle. Cycling through vineyards and country roads we visit a selection of Marlborough wineries where you can try the world renowned Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc.

The boutique food tours ( driving) allow you to try wonderful grassy NZ olive oils and taste seasonal produce like cherries and plums fresh from the tree. A cheesemaking class with cheese and wine matching is also a feature of our full day food tour.

Drive around the valley's wineries with our full day wine tours. We visit small boutique family owned wineries where you meet the owners as well as the larger established wineries. Our guides have all worked in the industry or grown or made wine so you have the benefit of a wealth of knowledge.

We also offer bike hire for the independent traveller that wants to tour the Marlborough wine region by themselves.

So whether you are in the region to walk the Queen Charlotte Track or are coming off a cruise ship for a day in Marlborough or even just driving through on your own, take time to come and Explore Marlborough with us and let us show you the best that Marlborough has to offer.
